|Mesu Kasumai - 3 Channel Metropolitan [8bp034] - Mesu Kasumai|
Get ready for another round of fresh and funky electrochip madness with Mesu Kasumai. This follow-up to his party-rocking debut remains true to the style he set there, only this time treating us to completely original material. Mesu synthesizes powerups from pure waveforms before sending them flying on vectors straight into your ears like blazing starfighters from the 8bitpeoples galactic empire. In the final tune you will be subjected to an amusingly gruesome end, but you can be sure that we ha...

|Psilodump - Memory Loss [8bp040] - Psilodump|
Now, some things are better left unspoken. But that is beside the point. Yet, the point is not the issue here. The issue is omitted and the reason forgotten. Memories may become corrupted but beauty remains. Still, that is no excuse for acting blind ... or maybe it is ... what you have lost might not just be your memory.

|Rugar - My Girl, The Princess [8bp030] - Rugar|
With influences such as classic game soundtracks and Tin Pan Alley evergreens, mixed with the sounds of 20th century atonality and Salvation Army hymns, I have created a collage of musical scenes depicting adolescence in the dawn of the third millennium. The songs are entirely made with the MCK system, which should vouch for a genuine twenty-minute NES experience.

|Minusbaby - Monkey Patch [8bp036] - Minusbaby|
My earliest memory of a monkey is the scene in "Kingukongu tai Gojira" where King Kong opens a giant snake's mouth so far beyond it's natural extention point that it eventually looks like a mushroom with a long, wiggly, scaled stem. Sure, King Kong is an ape but to a 4 year old, it was a very big monkey with an attitude problem. It was also pretty bad-ass. So, in return for playfully horrific imagery, I managed to write an album dedicated to all things apish and monkeyed...

Some of the best electro remixes of classic 80s pop songs on the planet, this album is sure to amaze you ... whether you are amazed at the fresh stylings Mesu Kasumai gives these old tunes or the fact that someone could still be so obsessed with a decade that brought us such wonders as the Rubik's Cube and Max Headroom is another question...

|Nullsleep - Click Bleep Click [8bp008] - Nullsleep|
Bittersweet feelings are evoked by the unexpected mixture of sampled videogames and bleeps and clicks generated from chopped and processed urban field recordings. In a sense this was my requiem for the arcades, slowly dying out with the advent of "better" home videogame consoles. Nursery music for Street Fighter player's children's children.

|Nullsleep - The Gameboy Singles 2002 [8bp027] - Nullsleep|
A roughly chronological collection ranging from some of my earliest gameboy tunes to the ones written in 2002. While the first half presents an innocent fun approach (aside from the harder edge of Harm Parm), the concluding three tracks show a maturation in both style and technique. A must have for high school makeout parties.

|Sabastian Boaz - Sabby Inside You [8bp024] - Sabastian Boaz|
Part one of this two part series shows me flex my muscles as a lo-fi, sex god, rock star. Unlike all of my earlier multitracked work, this was mostly sequenced with a pc and a commodore128. Sounds ripped from a talking wrist watch, my house doorbell, a mac lc and many toy keyboards such as the casio vl-tone in "one vanquished leopard."

|Sabastian Boaz - Sabby Inside Me [8bp026]|
Part two of this series shows my love and heart break of 2002. Being the sister to the first EP. Its sound is rather similar, except with a cleaner electronic sound. Created with the sounds of a melo-sonic and yet even more toy keyboards. Sexual references remain the focal point.

|Nullsleep - Hello World [8bp017] - Nullsleep|
This album marked a definite change in approach for me. Hello World is decidedly simpler and more playful than my previous works. Full of bleeps and bloops, its charm lays within its childish flaws.

|Sabastian Boaz - Warm Feeling [8bp021] - Sabastian Boaz|
This album is a tribute to my love of the vagina. I became very interested in circuit bending and the relationship between sex and music played with "body contacts." The result is a chaotic machine-like sound, with a bit of beauty seeping out.
|Sabastian Boaz - Audiocraft [8bp035]|
Audiocraft is a trip though Sabastian's interpretation of the 1980s, from the synth rock of Heart Error to the creepy electro of Little Rubber Buttons. A departure from his earlier work, this cd packs a punch of flamboyant catchy synths, heavy electro bass lines and slamming drums. If you want to dance or maybe throw yourself around singing like you're Steve Perry this CD is for you.

|Commie64 - Boolean Values [8bp023] - Commie64|
A true awakening from the previous Slap The Pigeon EP anguish, Boolean Values gives both sides to each story. It begins with a short prelude to set the mood: start. Emotions 2D max.
|Tangible - Homewerks [8bp019] - Tangible|
A mix of stunted drum clippings, and smaller chopped melodies and effects. This album is more cynical in nature than the first two tangible albums, sometimes triggering sad or confused emotions.
|Yuppster - Simon [8bp016] - Yuppster|
This was made over Christmas break 2000. I was at my parents house on vacation and stayed up late making the tracks with Buzz Tracker, which I had just downloaded. I used the same samples and effects for all of them. The EP is full of crunchy beats and melodic sustained synth sounds. Everything is a bit peaked out. As for the concept, each song represents a color on Simon. The color, hopefully, corresponds to the sound in some way.
|Commie64 - Slap The Pigeon [8bp018] - Commie64|
Out of anger, sadness, regret and loneliness came Slap the pigeon; a mosaic of the rough times in my own life. You will get a feel for the intense emotions, but also become aware of their subtleties in a way.

|Twilight Electric - Meanings [8bp039]|
Twilight Electric's "Meanings" touches on three important aspects of life. The Self Portrait, gaining an understanding of yourself in the most raw and honest form. True Fidelity, being dedicated to one sincere cause and sticking with it, through thick and thin. And Stepping Back, taking a moment to stop and look at all that you have achieved and endured. "Meanings" is presented through a triad of instrumental movements and based around the casio vl-1...
|Yuppster - The Okinawa Campaign 1 [8bp003] - Yuppster|
Bring it back to '99 with this early 8BP release. I still enjoy some of these cuts. Most are pretty melodic, but a bit more tweaked out than my later stuff. It's mostly made with my now sold MC303 - some are recorded live, others touched up with the computer.
|The 8bitpeoples - Axel F [8bp028] - The 8bitpeoples|
It started as a joke but in the end it just seemed too ridiculously appropriate, and here it is. Six very different takes on the classic theme ranging from Mesu Kasumai's detroit electro throwdown, Sabastian Boaz's maniacal casio n' bass frenzy and Twilight Electric's honest and innocent synthpop mix, to Nullsleep's pure nintendo love, Ten and Tracer's hauntingly melancholic surprise and Yuppster's pumping SID attack, it is undoubtedly an essential collection.
